Happy 11th Birthday CRAFT Challenge


Good Morning,
This year Craft  Challenge is 11 years old and still going strong.

Our team is a group of dedicated, talented, lovely people lead by the only team member who has been present from the start, Jo.

If you feel at any time that you would like to join our fabulous team, then just have a look on our DT Call page, which will inform you of any openings on the team. Or, simply get in touch with us and let us know.

And now it's time for our birthday celebrations. This week our challenge is

Birthday!

(what else could it be?)

Anything that fits in with this subject, qualifies for entering into this challenge.

There is a maximum of 1 entry per person for this challenge and as always it needs to be new work (so created and posted after this challenge has started). Although we love to see your work, it would put those contestants that put more than 1 entry in at an unfair advantage. The same limit exists for the prizes to be won on the blogs of our DT members.

Please also make sure to turn word verification off as this makes leaving a comment on your lovely creations much easier. We do not leave a comment if you have word verification switched on.

The rules this year are very simple:
     1.     Make a project for this challenge and add it to the Craft  Challenge Blog  and your entry will be put in the random draw for the prize from Love To Scrap 2 .
   2.     Visit the blogs of our DT and enter into their Linky or their comments if no Linky is in place to be put in the random draw for the prize on their blog.
    3.     The Top 3 will be chosen as every week and each of the Top 3 will win a prize this week too.


     You should have come here from Monika’s Blog and as you can see your next stop is Jo’s Blog .


There are 2  prizes on this blog.

Sponsor 1: Bugaboo Stamps - $12 Voucher for their store.
And
Sponsor 2: The Cutting CafĂ© – 3 sets from the on line shop.

Please leave a link to your project using the inklinkz below.
